Twin Turbo Studebaker 2009 Dyno Session

After installing upgraded turbochargers from www.timsturbos.com, we're back on the chassis dynamometer to retune for the new power. The car currently holds a SCTA Record at Bonneville for Altered Coupes running 500" or greater, forced induction engines: 241mph. It only needs another 5mph to qualify for entry into the 200mph Club at Bonneville, which is a difficult accomplishment. Thus, We added exactly 100hp and 100 ft-lbs of torque to the wheels, this time carrying it all the way to 7000RPM. This is a 515 cubic inch Merlin Big Block chevy. Megasquirt EFI with 150lb/hr injectors, a pair of modified GT38 turbochargers, external wastegates, custom air-to-water Intercooler. This car is built for landspeed racing.

SB2 in a Studebaker
Lee Sicilio's "other car" - SB2 engine (NASCAR-ish) that came out of a 2003 race truck (Craftsman truck series I think?? dunno, I don't do carburetors). Anyways, I figure anytime someone starts up a cool engine, is a good time to record a short video. (I work with these guys on the #1001 Daytona Charger, orange car in my other videos).
